laptop notebook 2.5" sata hard drive 500gb

A new hard drive not only gives your computer more storage, it can speed it up.

All hard drives slow down dramatically as they fill up - a drive that is nearly full can be performing at only half the speed it was new (it's geometry - the inner tracks of the platter are shorter and can't pass as much data per revolution).

A new larger hard drive will get your data back out to the fastest (outer) tracks of the drive, and restore some speed. The latest model high areal density drives have exeptionally good performance

PLEASE NOTE:

In reality, that 500gb drive is 465gb physically. It's the difference between binary and decimal numbers and the use of SI units. The computer is calculating the binary number and the box shows the decimal number.
1 byte in binary is 2^10 = 1024 The closest decimal number is 10^3 = 1000.
1 gigabyte in binary is 2^30 = 1,073,741,824 The closest decimal number is 10^9 = 1,000,000,000.
The drive manufacturers use the decimal number taken from the binary number.
